Dr Jana Matthews, MD, ANZ Innovyz START accelerator
“Despite the rapid expansion of Australia’s startup ecosystem, we are still in the bottom half of the developed countries. Even though we are focussing more resources on helping new tech startups, fewer companies are breaking past the ‘startup’ phase to high growth. We need to know more than how to start up; we need to know how to scale up.”Dr Jana Matthews, MD, ANZ Innovyz START accelerator
“You want the conversation to be ‘my son’s going to be a doctor, lawyer or investment banker’ but also ‘my son or daughter is a maths wiz; she wants to be an entrepreneur’.”Bill Bartee, Co-Founder, Southern Cross Venture Partners
